Notes / Commentary:

LeBlanc's listing indicates that the titles were unnumbered; presumably the order of the listing here is based on an advertisement.

One title not included in LeBlanc's listing, The Jolly Parisiennes, was found in a digitized copy in the Internet Archive, dated 1888. This includes a list of "Emile Zola's Great Realistic Works," consisting of the same 21 titles provided by LeBlanc (but in a slightly different order). That title is listed here without numbering. Since Peterson's publications often have no formal series titles, it is likely that multiple editions of these books exist containing different advertising and branding.
